  • Stacy @ Every Little Thing June 25, 2012, 1:16 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to plug our blogs! I think my favorite from the above list is Iowa Girl Eats, mostly because she makes good quality recipes that aren’t intimidating and have the bonus health factor.

    My blog ( ) is about all natural and organic eating, and supporting a hyper-local lifestyle. I work to get most of my food from local sources (farms, markets, co-ops, etc), and support my community (St. Louis!). I’m an active member of Slow Food St. Louis and do whatever I can to support area events, people, restaurants, etc. The majority of my posts are recipes using only all natural foods, and my goal is to show people that buying groceries from their farmer’s market and turning into a quality meal doesn’t have to be intimidating!

    Thanks again!

  • Rachael @ Mrs-Adventure June 25, 2012, 1:18 pm

    First CONGRATS on the Fitteratis that’s awesome!

    I write at where I share recipes, travel tales and of course our misadventures. I’m pregnant at the moment so the hormones have been flying all of which is reflected honestly and tearfully.

  • Ashley June 25, 2012, 1:19 pm

    CONGRATS! Caitlin, that’s great.

    I am nowhere NEAR a fitness blog (though I did recently complete my first half-marathon and I’ve been vegetarian for 7.5 years).

    I blog about green living and minimalism. Less stuff, more life! Oh, and I have my own design business and a son who’s nearly two, so that comes up…all the time. 🙂

    So nice to encourage all these shameless plugs! I’m Alayna Tucker and I write Thyme Bombe. ( ) It was originally a healthy living blog, but lately it’s been a lot more lifecasting. I cook mostly asian food at home, and I’m about a month out from completing my first cookbook! It’s about how to use common Japanese ingredients in more familiar ways. And this week is a bit of bonus content with a recap of the wedding cake I just made for my brother-in-law. I hope you check it out!

I lost over 50lbs without counting (calories or points), just cutting added sugar from my diet, eating smaller portions, and adding veggie juices.

    Caitlin, I’m sure being married to a European you can relate to some of these funny differences!

  • Stephanie @ Athlete at Heart June 25, 2012, 1:24 pm


    My blog is called Athlete at Heart because I LOVE training and racing with all my heart but I’m far from fast and won’t be winning any awards.

  • Cristina @ Girl Meets Pink June 25, 2012, 1:29 pm

    Congrats on your award! You earned it.

    I blog at Girl Meets Pink ( and even though its undergoing a revamp, I write about striving for balance with healthy eating, fitness and self acceptance. I found inner peace with running and turned to that to help me digest my thoughts versus internalizing them!

  • Britt June 25, 2012, 1:30 pm

    Congrats on the award!! Your blog was one of the first that I started reading!

    I started to share recipes, but I picked a blog name that could encompass whatever the blog evolved into. I live a pretty face-paced and busy life style. School. Work. Husband. Dogs. House. Etc. Etc. What I’ve been realizing over the past two years is that I struggle the most with finding balance. (Don’t we all?) Gaining weight, stressing out, not sleeping enough. So the blog has really morphed into an exploration of how to find balance and enjoy life rather than being swept up by it. I’d call it a living well blog. I share my struggles and successes, as well as inspiration from others.

    The other is a blog I keep with my mom and sister ( – we found ourselves emailing every morning about the recipes we tried for dinner last night, or the craziness of some new fad diet, or a new workout dvd, or whatever, so we decided to share these on the blogosphere instead. Been going for over a year now, and it’s so much fun 🙂

  • Lydia @ Inhabit the Beauty June 25, 2012, 2:23 pm

    Thanks for this opportunity, and congratulations on being featured!

    I am a real woman engaged in the real struggle against obesity. I’m working to find a healthier, happier lifestyle through diet and exercises. I hope that my experiences can help to inspire, encourage or reassure others to make a healthy change in their life.

    I am in my early 30s, married, and live in Kentucky. My state consistently has poor rankings in health and fitness surveys. I don’t want to be one of those statistics! I want to be a part of that change in our culture.

    The blog is a space for me to share the ups and downs of my quest for a healthier life. For me, weight loss is a key component to that healthier life. I don’t pretend to know what is the right decision for others!

  • Cassie June 25, 2012, 2:24 pm

    Caitlin – that’s wonderful, congratulations!

    I recently started a new blog, part of my new determination to stop obsessing about food and diet (so I don’t write about that)! Early this summer, I decided I wanted to read all of Jane Austen’s novels and I realized I could do that – and watch the films, read some criticisms, etc. by the end of the summer. One season. Three months.

    And thus we now have I have two projects right now – Summer of Austen and Project Ukulele. I don’t know where this blog will go, but I’m pretty excited about tackling a bunch of new things in 3-month chunks.

  • Dominique Bain June 25, 2012, 2:24 pm

    Let me second all the congratulations from everyone. I have really enjoyed your blog since I found it a couple of months ago – especially everything about your pregnancy and new baby. I’m pregnant and due July 8th – so it has been fun to follow someone’s journey who’s only a couple of weeks ahead of me.

    I don’t have a blog – but my husband does. He blogs about hiking in Northern Arizona including the Grand Canyon, running, yoga, food and weight-loss. The blog is
    It has been a great tool for him to continue working towards his goals with healthy living and weight loss.

    Pretty much it’s an ongoing public diary of my life epiphanies.

  • Claire @ Live and Love to Eat June 25, 2012, 2:26 pm

    My blog, Live and Love to Eat,( is unique because I’m a dietitan and love to publish 99% healthy recipes – not just desserts! I also recently started a weekly breakfast food link up to encourage eating breakfast as part of a healthy lifestyle. Congrats on your win! 🙂

  • Danielle @ D.SellsSeashells June 25, 2012, 2:29 pm

    My blog is called D. Sells Seashells. I blog about fitness, running, health, food, and a few random topics (skin care, fashion) here and there.

    I started my blog because I lost 100lbs and through the process, learned that weight loss needs to be a customized process; not all weight-loss rules, tips and tricks will work for everyone, or even most people.

    My weight loss has required a personal paradigm shift. I’ve abandoned Weight Watchers, I don’t eat breakfast every day, and some days I don’t get my recommended dose of vegetables.

    I’ve learned some tips through my journey so far and come have up with my own “tools” for weight loss, and I’m using them to lose the last 20lbs.

  • Tasha - The Clean Eating Mama June 25, 2012, 2:46 pm

    WOOHOO Congrats on the mention! Did you know you had won?

    I have been blogging for several years when I decided to change my eating habits for good. I was an overweight child who dabbled in eating disorders as I grew older. When I gave birth to my son I wanted to show him healthy examples and not have him go through the same torture that I did.
    It started out documenting my every day eats… then slowed down as life got busy and I was only posting recipes. All based on Clean Eating.
    Now I am in another transition – I want to make it a resource for ALL Clean Living – recipes, restaurants, products, etc.
    But for now, I am still posting vegan recipes, life happenings and the occasional rant.
    Healthy Eating!

    My blog is Momucation ( I am a new, first-time mom myself and I have found that all of the things I used to do with ease (cooking, hair and make-up, even a trip to the store) are now much harder to do with a baby, so my blog focuses on how to do these things again, probably with much less time or using one arm, now that baby is here. I call all of these new learning experiences a “Momucation.”

  • The Delicate Place June 25, 2012, 8:34 pm

    i’ve been blogging for a couple years now but i don’t have a huge following since i don’t really beat to the typical HLB drum.

    i am a full time biologist in pittsburgh so my blogging is 3-4x a week max! however, i post on a range of topics from the arts to fashion & healthy living!

  • Jolene (Homespun Heritage) June 25, 2012, 8:35 pm


    We are a large multi-racial family currently adding 2 children from China with the possibility of more in the future. Our blog is a combo of adoption blessings and challenges and our crazy life!

  • Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See June 25, 2012, 8:36 pm

    Wow, congrats girl!! And you’re so sweet to allow for all this pluggin’. It’s been wonderful discovering so many new blogs.

    I’m a rising sophomore at Georgetown University. Fueled by music, sunshine, and dreams. Food Aficionado. Nutrition Enthusiast. Dedicated lover of puns.

    “You, Me, and A World to See” ( a blog celebrating my passion for silly musings, whimsical photos, and of course, delicious, healthy food.

    It is a celebration of life. Of reflecting on the ways and means of each and every day. Of striking a balance, getting lost and finding myself. Of learning how to be one for many and tasting happiness along the way.

  • Emily June 25, 2012, 8:38 pm

    The blog, in its infancy, is a testament to the thousands of educators who have lost their job or simply cannot find another. Many of us have masters and doctoral degrees, like myself, but because of massive budget cuts, we are not being hired. It’s just my comical journey and support network for people like myself!!

  • Alex @ Healthy Life Happy Wife June 25, 2012, 8:38 pm

    I read almost all of those blogs! All great in their own way 🙂

    My blog is my attempt at a running blog – but there are still quite a few nights out & too many drinks documented, as well!

    Congrats on the magazine!!

  • Hillary June 25, 2012, 8:42 pm

    Congrats to Caitlin! I’d love to share my blog:
    Health and fitness professionals Hillary Helmling (Yoga Instructor), Jen Morris (Health Coach), and Randi Stone (Pilates & MELT Instructor) met in the Big Apple and bonded over the trials and tribulations of running boutique wellness businesses in the city that never sleeps…or eats well…or works out…or meditates.

    Oh!Spired is a happy medium, bridging the gap between facts and personal interest stories. While readers will find plenty of tangible, hands on healthy stuff, Oh!Spired is irreverent and, at times, self-deprecating. It is NOT about being perfect because we are not health and fitness goddesses. Like so many women out there, we are figuring out what works as we go and ‘failing forward’ every step of the way. They say laughter is the best medicine and we intend to heavily self-medicate.

    We try not to take life or ourselves too seriously. You can say we take it with a grain of salt…of a bar of chocolate.

  • Janelle June 25, 2012, 8:45 pm

    Go, Caitlin, go! Wow, it would be so weird to see my face in a magazine…

    My blog is about about my journey from boxed mac and cheese to actually eating somewhat healthy and homemade food. Along the way, I discovered that I really love cooking. Right now I’m doing a series of posts on how I’m using the produce from my CSA box in my weekly meals:

    Of course, random bits (and pics) of my life in Chicago get thrown in too!

  • Jen C. June 25, 2012, 8:51 pm

    I love Fitness magazine and was so excited to see the list of the winning blogs. That is how I discovered your blog and I love it!!!! Thanks for sharing the links to the other blogs, can’t wait to check them out.

  • sandra June 25, 2012, 8:54 pm

    Yay! I picked up this magazine at the airport last week. I was so excited to see your blog win. And, it was also fun “to see a familiar face” during my travels. Thanks!

  • Leslie June 25, 2012, 8:57 pm

    My blog is And Her Little Dog Too –

    I blog about my life in Philadelphia with my new husband, Charles & dog, Jackson – including my adventures in running, cooking & healthy living!

  • BroccoliHut June 25, 2012, 9:06 pm

    Great list of blogs! I see some old faves and some new ones there–thanks for sharing!
    My blog is The Broccoli Hut ( It started out as a way for me to expand my cooking skills as a young vegetarian, but since I started it four years ago it’s become a way for me to share what I’ve learned on my path to becoming a dietitian. I post recipes, health news, and general nutrition advice.

  • April June 25, 2012, 9:10 pm

    I’ve tried several times to start and life somehow got in my way. So I started again and am blogging about building my life, so it’s hard for it to get in the way now :-). It’s just a start but you have to start somewhere right?

  • Ashton @ High Heels and Outdoor Thrills June 25, 2012, 9:17 pm

    Congrats! How awesome is that! I’ve been a behind the scenes reader for years… I have loved hearing all about your pregnancy, and most recently your new addition, Henry. Thanks so much for sharing and being so real.
    I actually just started my blog yesterday and haven’t posted until today. What an awesome time to see you asking for blog plugs.
    My blog, High Heels and Outdoor Thrills is where I document about my time being the girly girl that I am, even when I am doing a mostly man’s sport- hunting. I have just began my journey with bowhunting, which many women love, but I don’t know any women personally that do bowhunt. I believe in eating healthy, we’ve always eaten food my dad or husband has harvested or that we have grown, and I believe taking care of myself physically by working out is crucial to hunting down my food. So maybe it counts as a fitness/health blog too.
    Thanks for all you share! Your blog has kept me so informed!!

  • Emma June 25, 2012, 9:24 pm

    I didn’t actually click through to most of those blogs, but I have to say that I really did not like a lot of those titles and the focus on “skinny”!! That is NOT healthy living.

  • Lea June 25, 2012, 9:26 pm

    Congrats on the award!

    My blog is Greens and Coffee Beans ( and it chronicles my life as a vegetarian, part-time hippie, fitness-obsessed, Pilates teaching, slightly awkward, college student (whew! A mouthful). I’m a bit of a goof ball and not a afraid to be myself so I hope it makes for an entertaining read!

    I like the “Plug your blog” idea! I love meeting and connecting with other health-minded people (and really anyone in general!), and welcome the opportunity to meet new people.

  • Katie @coffeeloversdilemma June 25, 2012, 9:34 pm

    Congrats cailtin!!! That is an amazing accomplishment and I am striving to make my blog as great as yours. I am a retired swimmer who is navigating her way through exercise outside of the pool. I am a registered dietitian ( well will be after Thursday :)) who is a heart transplant and cardiac dietitian and loves to cook and help people improve their lives through food!

  • Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 25, 2012, 9:43 pm

    CONGRATS!!! You deserve it. After all, HTP is my personal favorite blog, so it makes sense to me!

    Well, guess I’ll plug my blog! I blog over at Going Gulia ( I’ve read heathy living blogs for years, and finally decided to get more involved with my own. And while I’d like to have a healthy living focus to it, I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it’s more about just living. There was a time when I dealt with eating issues that kept me from really living my life, but now that I’m past that, I’m all about making the most of it. As a rising senior in college, I’m just one year away from that mystical “real world” (eesh), so I’m blogging about healthily rocking the heck out of whatever else I find blog-worthy 🙂

  • Jodie June 25, 2012, 9:48 pm

    Congratulations Caitlin!

    And thanks a bunch for the blog plug – so many new blogs to read from your post and all the comments, yay!

  • Sarah @ Carroll Creations June 25, 2012, 10:04 pm

    Congrats! I love your blog and have been reading for a while, but am just now really trying to get into my blog and connecting with others. I blog about my life – as a wife, teacher, and dog lover! I love the Lord and love to reflect on Him. I also post recipes and sewing creations occasionally. I am excited for the real passion I have for blogging to be able to come alive! (

  • Meagan June 25, 2012, 10:07 pm

  • Gillian @ That's G June 25, 2012, 10:17 pm

    Hi! I’m Gillian from That’s G (

    My blog is a mix of a bunch of random things: my life in LA, health/fitness/running/working out, my experiences in law school, and my favorite restaurants/bars…oh yeah, and I love to travel/am obsessed with Spain, so you’ll find lots of travel tips/guides as well 🙂

  • Caitlin June 25, 2012, 10:35 pm

    I love that you did this! I’m checking out new blogs (well, new to me) right now – thank you!
    My blog is Caitlin Lives Well ( and I think what makes it unique is that I focus on taking responsibility for your health, every day, through every choice you make – even when those choices include frozen yogurt or beer! 🙂

  • Jessica June 25, 2012, 10:47 pm

I write about my struggle to balance my passion for healthy living, eating, and exercising with my stressful job as a corporate drone in my first year out of college.

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie June 25, 2012, 11:29 pm

    Whoa, congrats! Of course, you totally deserve it so I shouldn’t be surprised.

    My name is Diana and I blog over at about motherhood, food, gardening and what not. Passionate about natural living and the frugal lifestyle. I love making my own foods, cleaners, shampoo from scratch and some might call me a little ‘granola’ since I’m into natural birth, organic food, and recycling everything down to clothing.

  • Jolene ( June 25, 2012, 11:32 pm

    My blog is cool because I love to entertain and post a lot of dinner party recaps and ideas that others could use.

  • Michelle June 25, 2012, 11:53 pm

    My goal is to lose at least 100 pounds, I’m down 76 so far.

    I’m all about loving your body, being positive and being healthy.

  • Grace June 26, 2012, 12:25 am

    So…congrats. And thank you for allowing the plugs because I currently have about 20 tabs open to read! Exciting!

    I blog at! My name is Grace and my little blog is about, you guessed it, my daily life. Well not exactly, daily because I still have not figured out how to stop time and blog three times a day the way some of you rockstars do! Tell me your secrets please!

    Anyway I am a very recent college grad taking a gap summer of sorts to travel around visiting my family and discover some new cities I might want to move to before attempting to figure out what to do with my life. I love food so I guarantee there will always be pictures of food. I’m a pescatarian trying to go mostly dairy and gluten free as well but the pancakes I had for dinner might suggest otherwise. I also run…very slowly.

    Basically I am a 20 something sharing my adventures in loving life whether it be food, travel, running or family related!

    Thanks again Caitlin:)

  • Sharon MacGregor June 26, 2012, 8:08 am

    Shameless plug for my blog –
    I write about food, the stories of the people it is eaten with and maybe a recipe or two. I find that most of my memorable experiences are shared over a meal or even a snack and my earlies memories also overlap with food! Stop by, say hello and share. Thanks – Sharon

  • Sara @my less serious life June 26, 2012, 8:17 am

  • Michelle McIsaac June 26, 2012, 9:03 am

    Caitlin, I have been following your blog for over a year now and you have even been the inspiration for some of the YOGURT MESSes I throw together in the mornings!! I actually have a link to your website under “favorite blogs” and if you ever wanted to do a guest post, I would be more than happy to share it for you!

    Feel free to click the “About” button on my website to learn a little more about me and why I choose to blog. My ultimate goal is to have nutrition education added to our high school curriculum, but, like you, I also simply want to help inspire the world to live a happier, healthier life.

  • Tamika Davis June 26, 2012, 9:36 am

    Congratulations on your Fitness Magazine feature. It is certainly well-deserved. Here’s my plug:

    Holistic Spark started as a healthy living blog from an African American perspective. The blog details my quest to maintain a 40 lb weight loss, success/failures in the kitchen, and now my pregnancy (I’m 24 weeks along!).

    Thank you for providing the opportunity to promote our blogs.

  • Leah June 26, 2012, 10:59 am

    Congrats on the Fitness Magazine feature! How awesome!

    At the moment I blog at about all things fitness, health, travel – anything that takes my fancy really! It’s a bit of a jumble but I hope to streamline it into more of a healthy living blog soon.

    I’m a New Zealander living in London (but just spent the last year living in Canada) so I love making new friends all around the world – come say hi!

    Thanks again for giving us the chance to plug our blogs hehe!

  • Tori @ Get a Word in Veg Wise June 26, 2012, 11:09 am

    I know I’m late on the congrats but way to go!

    So about my blog…

    Unlike a lot of the blogs I follow (and love), I don’t think I fall in to any specific “category”. I’m not a personal trainer (although I’m a fitness enthusiast). I don’t document my everyday life (i.e. no pics of food 3 times per day, etc.).

    So what do I blog about? As a registered dietitian (RD) who works in pediatrics, I write about my true passion in life, which is NUTRITION! Sometimes I talk about experiences I’ve had with my kiddos at work, and sometimes I talk about how wine has some health benefits which makes me feel better about going out. I encourage anyone who loves nutrition (or is just curious) to stop by the ol blog, because I LOVE sharing (and receiving) more food and nutrition info from others 🙂

  • Sara @ Running In Pink June 26, 2012, 11:17 am

    Congrats on the award!!
    So many of my faovorite bloggers on that list but I always love finding new blogs to read – my quest for insperation is endless.
    My blog is – I write mostly about running, but also finding a healthy balance between life, food and fitness. One of my favorite sayings in regards to healthy living is “never buy bigger pants”.

    • Amber June 28, 2012, 6:34 am

      I can’t wait to check out your blog. I’ve recently lost about 20lbs for the exact reason your tag line suggests. I was never really that overweight, however my pants wern’t fitting anymore and as I tell people when they ask why?!? I say well I’m 29 and not pregnant there is not good reason for me to out grow my pants.

I’m about neck in neck with running posts and reading posts, and the real life portion is sprinkled in for I’m not a professional writer, but instead a mom of two, a part time working woman, and a total extrovert so another way to connect with people and be ChattyNatty.

  • Ellie June 30, 2012, 8:33 pm

    My name is Ellie, I am an 18-year-old journalism student, hoping to get noticed for my writing along the way by posting to my blog daily.

    On I tend to write about my opinions on a variety of issues like things I’ve seen during my day, the occasional rant/gossip, controversial current affairs and the elephant in the room.

    I’m struggling to reach much of an audience, so I’d really appreciate it if anyone were to have a read and give me any feedback.

    Congrats on the blogging award, Caitlin!

    You can find my blog here:

    It’s still a baby blog, but I’m really enjoying blogging! I use it as a space to blog about a big passion of mine…FITNESS! and food, too 🙂

    Little late to the party, but I’ll throw mine in anyways!

    I just started my blog yesterday, I’d love some people to come check it out! I’m still finding my voice, but I’m focusing on fitness, food, recipes, eating disorder recovery, the importance of sprinkles on desserts…whatever is on my mind that day!

    Would love to meet some people!

    Wow, I’ve been out of the look and am just catching up! Crazy summer! Anyhoo- I write a vegetarian, healthy (mostly) food blog called Keep It Simple Foods. I’m also a big fan of Oh She Glows, Breathe Magazine online, How Sweet It Is, and Lauren’s Latest.

    There are so many great blogs out there, including HTP! xoxo
